Oberoi Amarvilas, India

The Kohinoor Suite

The hotel is just 650 yards from the Taj Mahal and this suite has unrivalled views of it. Perhaps that’s why Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Nicolas Sarkozy have all stayed here on state visits. The suite itself has a majestic style: white marble elephants, domed ceilings and mirror-inlaid walls. The shower opens onto a private terrace with day beds.
